If you’re in the market for a new roof, new siding, or new gutters, you probably already know what a big investment it can be. You don’t want to let just anyone handle the job. Here are some things to look for when choosing a contractor, and thus why East Coast Roofing should be your first choice.

  • If you’re taking bids for your roofing project, don’t immediately accept the lowest bid. A low bid may be an indicator of poor quality materials or sub-standard work. However, a roofing contractor may be able to offer a low bid because his costs are low or he has access to quality materials at lower prices.

  • East Coast Roofing’s low prices are not a result of poor materials or poor workmanship. The reason for East Coast Roofing’s low prices is because of its access to large quantities of materials from reputable manufacturers.

  • How long has the roofing contractor been in business? A company with an established business is likely to be around when you need them. If you have a warranty, you want to make certain someone is around to honor it should there ever be a problem.

  • East Coast Roofing has been in business for over twenty years and offers warranties on all of its projects. If there is ever a problem, East Coast Roofing will honor its warranty immediately.

  • Make certain the roofing company is licensed and insured. In most states it is illegal for a roofing contractor to work without a license. This protects consumers from contractors that are not experienced in the industry.

  • East Coast Roofing is licensed, bonded and insured, ensuring trust and safety for all of its clients.

  • Ask for references. A reputable roofing contractor will be happy to provide you with a list of previous customers.

  • With hundreds of satisfied homeowners and many contractors, East Coast Roofing will gladly provide its clients with references and testimonials.

  • Look for a roofer that has good communication skills. You want someone that you can talk to about your project, that will readily answer all your questions and that will keep you informed every step of the way. Poor communication can lead to misunderstandings, a finished job you may not be happy with and unwelcome surprises on your final bill.

  • With over 20 years of experience and a committed staff, East Coast Roofing understands the importance of good communication. Customers have the right to know exactly what is going on, no matter what type of project is being done to their home or business. The staff at East Coast Roofing promises to keep their clients informed because it believes that customer satisfaction and loyalty is utmost importance.

  • Make certain you hire a roofing contractor that offers a guarantee on the project. The roofing materials manufacturer will usually include a product warranty but this does not cover the installation. If there is a problem with the installation or materials, you want to have a written guarantee from the roofing contractor that he will be there to take care of the problem.

  • East Coast Roofing fully guarantees its materials and installation. Whether your structure needs roofing work, gutter and leaders work, siding work or waterproofing, East Coast Roofing will provide its customers with a written guarantee that the materials and installation will be taken care of.

  • A roofing company is only as good as the workers they employ. What kind of training or skill levels do they demand of workers? Do they provide safety training programs? Workers that follow safety training procedures haven been proven to have less accidents on the job.

  • All of the staff at East Coast Roofing is experienced and certified and has been employed with the company for at least three years. Additionally, all staff members are required to attend ongoing training and safety seminars to ensure up-to-date styles and techniques.

  • Does the roofing company crew clean-up the job site? If they need to remove old roofing materials is the clean up included in the cost? Some contractors are very fastidious and will clean up the site as they go. Others may wait until the end of the job, which can leave your property looking unkempt and can also create a hazard.

  • East Coast Roofing is strong in its belief that the workday is not over until the job site is cleaned up. Before the staff leaves the site, East Coast Roofing will make sure that your property is left exactly how it was before, if not better. The testimonials and references will support that claim.

  • Get a written contract. While an old fashioned handshake is nice and a sign of a courteous contractor, you still need to have everything in writing. This includes the scope of the project, the materials to be used and their specifications, the dates for beginning and completion of the job and an itemized list of cost for all materials and labor.

  • Nothing should be left up in the air. In order for all parties to be informed, every last detail will be in writing. From the planning to the estimated end date, East Coast Roofing requires that everything be in writing. This is for the benefit of not only the customer, but the company as well. Having a clear contract makes it very hard for there to be any misunderstandings.
